It's a treat to have a local, individually operated tea shop in town. Linda, the establishment proprietress, is so friendly and knowledgeable about all things tea! She patiently explains each type you inquire about and has fragrant samples for you to smell so you can have a better idea of what a tea will taste like. Sample sizes are packaged upon request, and it just gets better from there! She carefully weighs the exact amount you desire and includes a note along with her verbal explanation of how to prepare and serve each tea. Her soft, English accent simply adds to the ambiance and pleasure of a visit to her shop.
Is there a local tea shop in your community? Does it meet your heart's desire?
This visit (photographed) was in preparation for afternoon tea with Marilyn and the Traveling Teapot.
